Where the Heck Have I Been????

Ya, know. When it rains it pours.....

As many of my long-time readers know, I've spent much of my time in the area looking for full-time employment. A project here and there have arisen, but nothing kept me busy for the 40+ hours a week that I need to keep my ADD in check.

So, as a way to keep myself busy -- and help my new community -- I started working on the Lake Norman Wine and Food Festival. (Its gonna be AWESOME!!!) That job alone was giving me a full-time workload with no pay.

Then out-of-the-blue I was offered a temp job. It in exchange for working 40 hour weeks, I would actually recieve a paycheck for a couple of months. SWEET!!

But here's the rub, this means that I've been working 80+ hour weeks for the past month and a half! So, my Foodie duties have fallen by the wayside. My apologies.

But, the good news is that all my work and effort are finally coming together. The Festival is rocking at least a DOZEN wineries, each one pouring tastes of several vintages. So, if you go, you will get the chance to sample approx. 40-50 wines.

In addition, six eateries (Dresslers, Creole House, Brooklyn South, Mayo's Ristorante, Sangam Indian, and Kernel T's Korn Krib) will be serving everything from American and Italian to Indian and Cajun. THAT'S A WIDE-RANGING MENU!! And don't forget the local artists and vendors!!

So, in conclusion, I've slacked from my writing duties here, to make sure that I can benefit local charities through a kick-butt Festival that will whet your appetite for food and wine.

I hope all of you can make it. Drink some wine, eat some amazing food, and help the community at the same time. Sounds like an excellent June weekend to me!
